THE HISTORY OF THE MORNE BRABANT MOUNTAIN
The mountain Morne Brabant is a real symbol: that of freedom. Part of the spectacular peaks of Mauritius, it is turned to the open sea to the southwest of the island and flows into the sea. From the top of its 556 meters, it projects its proud gaze beyond the horizon, loving dreams, escape and freedom. The Morne Peninsula has been classified as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2008.
Until the abolition of slavery, this steep place would have served as a refuge for escaping slaves, they would have lived in its summits, braving the dangers for a little freedom. On the day of the declaration of the abolition of slavery, the authorities came to tell them the news. The “brown” slaves who did not believe a word of this decision would have preferred to jump off the mountain and kill themselves
Today, the ascent of this symbolic mountain of Morne Brabant is a beautiful route to make on foot. You can stop halfway or go to the top of this mountain, where there is a cross in memory of the slaves. On the mountain, we find endemic plants including the flower of Trochetia, which became the emblem of Mauritius. It is better to be accompanied by a guide. To your sneakers!
